She told him to go but he demanded to stay

Hardly knew him yet he put hands on her

At first she was eager to get to meet him

Another sunny day in the mid town park

Trees lined the trail they twice had walked

Today was a different sobering event

as he pushed her into concealing brush

laid out on top of her hard and heavy

until the hatpin left her hat

blunged it straight through his back

into his heart and now a crime

  1. Ohhhhh… well done! The tale is told and I keep reading wanting to know how it ends. The idea of the hatpin is perfect for this time period and this photo. I have an amazing photo of my grandmother with the most beautiful hat on…and I actually have the hatpin she used with it…they both have a place of honor on my bookshelf. So glad you posted with this prompt…I LOVE your take on it! And — interesting that she was the vulnerable, the one who was attacked (even though she knew him) and she ends up in jail. The twist of the hatpin…..could be the name of a novella! 🙂
